proper knot for braided line?

11 posts in this topic

I have been using the typical knot for my braid where you twist it and go through two loops.( i don't know the name of this knot) I'm pretty sure this is a knot for mono or other similar lines. Also I noticed that on my braided line when I get stuck on a dock I can pull the line from the hook if I pull hard enough. I would hate for this to happen with a monster on the line so what is a proper knot for braided line?

I use the same knot with braid with no issues make sure you wet the line before pulling tight it helps the line tighten down on its self better

Palomar is what you want to use with braided line.

Palomar is the only knot one should use for braid line. If you search the net, there is a video that shows the knot strength of all the knots that are used for fishing. The palomar knot had the strongest hold of all knots on braided line.

I think you were describing the improve clinch or is it cinch knot with the wraps and two loops. I use the Palomar also, but tend to use it for both braid and flouro. Not sure if it is best for flouro but I have never had a problem with it. Only real other knot I use is the double uni for leaders and mating different lines together. Way this year is going for me so far, might not need a hook to tie on! Hope all this bad luck goes somewhere else soon.

I use the blood for two lines, but I want to try the san diego? for drop shotting and stuff... I haven't had an issue with the palomar, but wonder if this new knot is better...

This is the Palomar and exactly what you should be using. But be careful this knot plus braid is probable stronger than any Avid smile

    • Keep an eye on those trees. They tend to jump in the way when your not looking.    won't be the same without ya. 
    • Truth be told it was the outstate money that originally built the metro into what it is. Without that funding St Paul would be nothing more than St Peter is today. 
    • Can't argue with the last part
    • I wonder if a person gets an extended warranty if that will help?  I have a 2011 with 5.3 silverado and all is good today so I'm thinking og looking into that.
    • My last kayak adventure was less than stellar wound up in the drink. And it was a cold drink at that. A very memorable paddle up to that point. It was the first time I had ever been on the water with snow on everything. It was awesome.    Alas, my 'yaks are all put up for the season now. Waiting for next years adventures to begin. 
    • I am toying with the idea of doing a little calling this weekend. The moon is nice and dark, so the first and last few minutes  of daylight might make something happen. It all depends on what I stumble into for sign. The majority of the deer hunters have been done for a while, so the free meals are going to be getting harder to come by. 
    • The fans I was talking about are 12 volt and only 1" deep. Putting them under the heater might not do the job because the heat from heater rises. If you have room in the lower cabinet on your heater you could mount one fan inside and blow the heat out the grill on the front of the heater.
    • I thought last night's game was surprisingly entertaining considering how low scoring it was for most of it. Not sure if people outside of MN and TX would agree. Rudolph dropping that ball in the end zone was devastating - IMO it was a bigger play than the final one. As much as I hate to see us continue to lose, I honestly have never seen a team lose so many starters at key positions and still be competitive. Says a lot about our coaching, depth, and players buying in.   Will be interesting to see what we can do with our OL without having a 1st rd pick this off season. As others have said, it wouldn't be a bad strategy to use every draft pick we have on the linemen.      
    • Yes. Unlike you I have a job and a life.   I'll just say that whatever it's about you are right because that's the only thing I could ever say that you would possibly agree with me on. I won't get in the way of your libertarian fantasies.
